Amazon review Tour: Two Footsteps by Belle Brooks

Title: Two Footsteps
Series: The Game of Life Series #2
Author: Belle Brooks
Genre: Psychological Thriller/Romantic Suspense
Release Date: September 5, 2017
“My life is in the Wolf’s hands.”

He is the Wolf. I am his Red. The game has begun and he wants me dead. 

But who is the Wolf? 

And why has he chosen me? 

He whistles a tune that’s haunting. He glares at me through eyes that are vacant. I feel his heart beating, yet I know he has no soul. He moves like the wind…I can’t hear his footsteps. I want this to end. He’s playing with my mind. He branded me with ink. He wants to destroy me. 

“I, Reid, take thee, Morgan, to be my wife. To have and to hold, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health, till death do us part…”

I have a reason to keep running. 

There’s no time to blink. 

Don’t look back. Don’t make a sound. 

I know he’s behind me.

Born in Australia, Belle Brooks has always had a passion for books and creative writing. She loves exploring the different ways stories can be told through the use of text and in-depth characters. Since she was a child her strong talent and interest in creative writing was evident, explaining that her favourite class in school was English. Despite her love for all things books, she decided the world of advertising and marketing was where she could put her talents to use in the business realm, well that is until now. Belle enjoys creative writing and creating fictional stories that leave a valued message inside the pages.


Like OMG. I was so sure Ms Brooks can’t shock me anymore but she certainly did. And thanks to that I’m falling in love with this series even harder now. I just cannot express how good this book was.

I have a bit of a theory of what is going on but knowing The author it will be totally different hahah

I love that the second part picks up where the first one left us hanging. Morgan is still fighting for her life and Reid is loosing his mind over her. I don’t want to put too much in here because simply it will spoil the fun of the emotional rollercoaster that was served to me.

A must read

5 stars.

WTMO Author Bio Banner Final.jpg
samantha.jpg
Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations any where at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.
I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.
I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.

When school starts and the events of the summer no one is likely to forget haven’t been solved, the five girls decide to take matters into their own hands.

Don’t miss the exciting second book in The Crimson Cove Mysteries.

AE WatsonAuthor Bio:
I am the mother of two beautiful girls who are growing up so fast, the wife of a cute guy in a uniform (my own personal hero), and a writer.

My family will tell you it doesn’t exactly fall into that order. Especially around dinner time when I “Cook” from a takeout menu with my face plastered to my computer.
I also have two cats who I adore more than I should, like more than people I know, and a dog. He is a beagle who is naughty but just so darned cute. He gives you that little beagle face and then steals your slice of pizza.
I have a busy mind and even busier fingers. I can write fast and keep track of a large cast, but I can’t remember why I’m at the grocery store. I try to write lists but they always end up being notes for books or indie bands. I LOVE INDIE MUSIC!
I talk to myself in the car and sing too loud for my skill level. The invention of Bluetooth has made talking in the car less awkward but if you hear me singing, run.
I love writing. I love my characters like they are my friends and I am telling their version of the truth.
My worst flaw is the horrid English accent which I read everything with. If I read aloud it comes too. I’m not English, so I can’t even do the accent which makes it awkward for anyone who is nearby.
My favourite authors are Robert Jordan and Jane Austen and Robert Mccammon and Jim Crace. I think Stephen King and Dean Koontz have the most unique imaginations. I have the hardest time not LOVING Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger. I know all the serial killers have a copy but I adored that novel. It made me feel a thousand different things and one of them was more alive. (And not in the least bit serial killer-ish)
When I grow up I want to be James Patterson or Nora Roberts. I aspire to be like them, always trying to hone my skills and work harder.
My genres are all over the map. I have Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Science Fiction, Erotica (under Sophie Starr my porn name so my mom doesn’t know), Thrillers, and even some Romantic Comedies.

Excerpt:

Halloween Scream
October 31, 2015

Sierra

The noise of the creaking stairs, the ones I had just crept up, sounded like it echoed in my ears. Someone had followed us here.
“Jake,” I whispered, hoping he was messing around. If he was, I would be angry. I lifted one leg after the other and slipped my high heels off, holding them both so I could tiptoe through the half-constructed mansion without making noise.
Jake didn’t answer, but the footsteps had stopped from the moment I whispered.
The scary movie marathon we’d had before Rachel died flashed through my head, bringing ideas and memories with it. I tiptoed around the corner, brushing my Frankenstein’s bride dress on the rough edge where the unfinished walls met. The drywall scraped against me, making me wince as I hurried along the corridor to the back deck. Whoever was in the house with me was either moving silently too or they were standing still, listening.
Either way, I had a terrible feeling this wasn’t a game.
That meant one thing: Jake was injured or hiding.
And I was alone.
My heart raced, my eyes burned from not blinking—fearful I would miss something—and my mouth was as dry as a mouthful of popcorn.
The floor creaked.
I froze.
“Sierra,” someone whispered into the dark.
My skin crawled when I realized it wasn’t Jake. It wasn’t his whisper. I’d heard that enough times, always in the dark, to know it wasn’t him.
“Sierra, don’t be scared.” It sounded like something it couldn’t be, but I didn’t believe. I stayed perfectly still, waiting for the moment I needed to run to the back deck and jump down onto the sandy beach.
What had the girls in the horror movies done wrong? What could I avoid? My mind raced, remembering the runners always got caught. They always got stabbed. Usually in the back. The thought of it made my skin burn where I imagined the knife would slice.
The hiders always got caught. They were the ones breathing too loudly or hiding in stupid places.
“Sierra, I won’t hurt you if you come to me.”
I squeezed my eyes shut for half a second and waited for the answer, the right choice, to pop into my head.
A dog barked, making me jump and open my eyes. The sound was joined by the creaking of the floorboards again.
With gentle breaths and controlled movements I crept along the hallway, entering the spot where the kitchen or master bedroom would likely go. The house was freshly sealed with windows and doors, but it was still in the drywall stage with plywood floors.
The massive back deck was through the white French doors, facing the beach and open ocean. The moon offered light, enough to make shadows move with me.
I hurried to an alcove I assumed would one day be a nook for a breakfast bar or maybe the ensuite soaker tub. I pressed my back against the wall and stared at the bright white French doors. If I could make it to them, I was free.
If only I had my cell phone, I could call the police or Jake or Vincent. Someone would come and help me. Even Ashton might answer.
But that wasn’t an option. I scolded myself for my weakness in me and forced my focus to be on the doors. They were my answer. They were my hope.
As I exhaled and plotted my moment to run and everything I would do from that point on, the floor creaked in the hallway behind me.
It was now or never.
Live or die.
I took one more breath and pushed off from the wall…

Second Nature Teaser 1

 

My Thoughts:

ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Well, I love every single book by Tara. Doesn’t matter under which alias she chooses to write. I love her paranormal, criminal, erotic. EVERY SINGLE ONE. Yes, I know I screamed. But I can’t help it.

The Second Nature is just as amazing as the first book. If not better. It takes off just right were the first book left and I love that. I don’t have to wait for my questions to be answered so it’s just AMAZING.

To avoid spoilers for people that have not read the first part I’m just going to say that the story is told from the POV of Lainey. She is giving us the full recap of all the situations the group finds themselves in. Where everyone seems to think that the stalker backed off, she gets more suspicious and start making maps of potential and knows moves of the killer (very Sherlock Holmes’ like! Me likes!). She and her friends find more and more clues, and in her way to find the answers she also finds love. Unexpected and totally not wanted.

With the race to save everyone she cares about she uncovers more and more lies. She is not sure who to trust as everyone is on her suspect list.

I can’t wait for the next book! Especially with this ending. It made my jaw to drop open. I think Tara is queen of twists and turns that no one expects!

AMAZING HEAVENLY FREAKING 5 STARS! ❤

Blurb:

After years of searching for her mother’s killer, Felicia “Lucky” Fascino is finally on the right track. With the help of her family, and on-again off-again boyfriend, Kenji Zinn, Lucky is getting closer to fulfilling the unspoken promise she made to her adoptive father.

As the group continues to dig deep into the assassin’s network, and search for the elusive Quimby, ties to the past come back full circle, endangering everyone Lucky loves and cares for. It’s only a matter of time before their secret is uncovered.

My thoughts:

I have received ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is the third book in this amazing series that grabbed my attention from the start of the book 1! I could not wait to write the review for this part as for me this is the best book among all 3 of them.

We have so much going on here. Lucky is finally getting answers after years of searching and hunting the guys that destroyed her family. Lucky is a perfect assassin. Even though she kills for money, she can defer good from bad and is actually able to feel love also. Her lover, Kenji is my new BBF. He is strong and determined to break all the walls that surrounds Lucky. He loves her and he wants to teach her how to love back. Their feelings are growing with every chapter. You can see how Lucky is changing thanks to him. She is no longer a girl, woman obsessed with vengeance. She is able to love him back and care for him.

This book is amazing. The multiple POVs, changing from good to bad guys makes it so much more interesting, as it’s rare to have the insight into the BAD guys way of thinking. I found it…refreshing.

This book is emotional not only because of the love between the main characters, but also because of all the action that it’s packed with. The whole series is.

Amazing 5 stars!
